Jonesboro Bowling Center expansion underway

Jonesboro Bowling Center expansion underway

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - There is construction happening at the Jonesboro Bowling Center.

The facility is expanding by 11,000 square feet.

When complete, it will add a private room and additional forms of entertainment including a ropes course, foam factory and inflatables.

Advertising and Marketing Director for the bowling center Justin Blaxton said this expansion will also mean something else: new jobs.

"Maybe 20 employees," Blaxton said. "We'll have to add on part time, full time, more cleaning crew, more people to do birthday parties, so absolutely there will be more jobs for Northeast Arkansas."

They hope to have the expansion complete in November.
